Curiously, the giant was discovered near the Karachi fisheries and was sold for the USD equivalent of $18,758. I'd like to know was able to claim ownership of the whale shark in order to sell it?


  1. I think they're pulling the classic guide trick of moving the minnow closer to the camera to make it look big. I suppose it's the guy with the crane that can claim he landed it.
